The Fees: There is no fee to attend. But in exchange for the private meeting room, we are expected make food and drink purchases. When you pay, please
tell the barista that you are with our Meetup group so that your purchases can tallied onto our account. So that's it. No more excuses. No more procrastination. Fire up your laptops and sharpen your pencils. Then join us to sit down, shut up, and write!

    Enjoyable conversation with other writers as always, and there's something about talking about writing that reinforces my intentions to do so. I stayed until 9:30 and wrote 1800 words on one project and 250 on another - a banner night for productivity!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
